Why do people instantly assume a trip to the D-League is a negative for a player?
Rockets previously 5-1 in back to backs.
Dante Cunningham out here destroying the Rockets.
Jrue. Money. All-Star form.
The Brow: Six blocks, zero fouls.
If the Pelicans close this out, it will be because Austin Rivers gave Jrue and Ant a lead to work with during his early 4th quarter stint.
Jrue Holiday crushes one then gets a putback. 91-81 Pelicans 2:20 to play
Dwight Howard holding his right shoulder.
Dwight Howard nice up and under after a couple of Anthony Davis baskets. Davis is 10-for-15.
Rivers layup. Rivers sets up Ryan Anderson three. The Austin Rivers game. 77-73 Pelicans. (Harden and Howard are on the bench)
Oh my ... Austin Rivers sets up a Davis dunk then draws a foul on next trip, two FTs give Pelicans a 72-70 lead with 10 MINS to play.
Pelicans give up a three to close the third, Rockets lead by three. Since Rivers tech things have not gone smoothly for New Orleans.
Here's a good idea, Austin Rivers, run your mouth to James Harden.
Austin Rivers you don't contribute enough to be getting techs.
So yeah ... I wrote that the Hawks should go after Asik. Not one of my better ideas.
Watching New Orleans-Houston is like watching a different sport. I'm used to spacing. With Asik on floor, Anthony Davis gets triple teamed.
Jalen Grinch wins the episode.
David Blatt got more laughs with his response than Hannibal Buress got out of that entire segment.
Anybody else notice what an ultra-composed game Dennis Schröder played? 10 AST 1 TO. Got yanked from CHI game for chucking in 4th quarter.
Some fine front office work on full display in Texas over the past 18 months ... and not talking about San Antonio. Dallas on the rise.
In 2013 the Mavericks had their 12 year playoff streak snapped. Reloaded in a hurry adding Monta Ellis, Rajon Rondo, Chandler & Chandler
SlumpWatch: Antic 26%; Schröder 23.5%; Sefolosha 15% from 3-point range.
Shelvin Mack is now shooting 30% from 3-point range for the season while Kent Bazemore's average is up to 35%.
With Boston going into tank mode, it's going to be harder for the Nets to miss the playoffs.
Russ vs Steph tonight... I'm slow baking my popcorn it'll be ready by 10:30
As I wrote Nov. 10, "Shelvin Mack remains a steady, reliable option." Yes, was a career game. But no reason to think he couldn't contribute.
Never indicated any under-performance by Mack but was deliberate effort to develop Schröder. For those comparing Mack to a baggage handler..
Notes from last night: - Highest shooting percentage (64.5%) in 17 years - First career start & double-double for Dennis - 66 bench PTS
The Akron Beacon Journal referred to Shelvin Mack as "a backup point guard with the touch of an airport baggage handler" Career 33% from 3.
Korver by contrast has had a couple of wild passes.
Noticing in this first quarter Dennis Schröder is creating a number of open shots that aren't being converted. He's playing very controlled.
Titans/Jaguars is the game Thursday Night Football was made for.
Muscala out here dunking
Nothing about Korver getting ice on his knees on the sideline do I approve of.
Hawks fans, with the way Teague/Umlaut/Mack are playing, are you interested in dealing for Rondo?
Hey Grizzlies & Spurs - Give us a few more overtimes so we can watch the end of it when we land!
Nique: "Shelden Mack, get another one up." loooooool love it!
Pero out here guarding Dion Waiters on the perimeter like he's not a 30-something bald white guy.
Watching the 2nd half on DVR: Nique: "The shots Cleveland made in that first game ... they're not making them shots right now." loool
Hello national sports consciousness, nice to meet you. We're the Atlanta Hawks.
Anybody still want to talk about the Hawks' strength of schedule?
How about our HAWKS!!! Amazing road win over the Cavs!
WINNER! Shelvin goes 6/6 from deep and drops 24 in a 127-98 win in Cleveland. http://t.co/3FxRtaYNct
